Closing date next Friday? - Aaaagh!!
Yep, the buyers are closing on their current house next Friday and want us out of here by the 24th. I picked up 12 boxes at the supermarket last night, I wonder how long it will take me to fill those up??
Only problem is the double-wide isn't scheduled to be finished with its remodel till mid-September! Guess what else? We haven't even seen the double-wide yet! This may be a true adventure for us! We go tomorrow afternoon at 4 p.m. to see it.
We rented one of the only available storage units (10x16) in our small town, but it won't take long for us to fill that up! Oh well, this is a living by faith and the seat of our pants thing at this point!
After 18 months of living our lives in limbo, this living life in the moment thing is a little scary! Whoa!

Live minute, by minute. He is there with you every step of the way. This is an exciting journey - but wow, fast! I wish I could come help you pack. I'm sure you've got local friends who can step in and lend a hand.

Wow! That is super fast! Sounds like some excitement around your house with some quick packing and fast thinking. I think God's timing is precious and so gracious. He seems to be filling you with a full plate and blessing you with a quick sale to help through a tough time. Wish I was closer to help out. When does D start school?

Wow! It's fast but I'm so glad that it is so that you can focus on this for awhile.
D won't have to change schools will she?

Congratulations to you ;o)

Moving a couple times in a relatively short period can be stressful. So I can relate. We moved into a rental for a month while waiting for our new home to be ready. Um, moved twice in about 5 weeks. Sheesh! It is alot of work, but so worth it in the long run to get the house you love ;o)

Congrats on selling your house! With the market for selling so bad in many areas, you all are so blessed sell it in less than a week! I hope the rental property was nice and that you all have a smooth transition into it! When do you plan to start building your new home? So exciting!! :)

Well, how did you like your potential temporary housing?! I know you're going to be so busy we won't hear much from you this week, but try to drop a note and let us know how it's going! How ever are you going to make without DSL?!?!
